Key Item Cactuar key


  • Interact with the Outcropping at (F-10) in Gustav Tunnel for a cutscene.
  • Prepare to battle: Trust Magic can not be used in this fight.
    • You will keep your buffs: Phalanx will negate all damage from this fight except Bompupu's nukes.
  • Interacting with the Outcropping again will start a fight against three Tenshodo agents named Renfred, Bompupu and Gorattz and take the Black book key item.
  • The three agents start off untargetable and cast Utsusemi: Ni a few times, then four clones of each spawn.
    • The clones aren't very strong, having low HP, accuracy, attack and defense, and cast elemental and enfeebling ninjutsu.
  • At some point (either time elapsed or number of clones defeated), the three agents will join the fight, at which time they can be attacked, and must be defeated in order to win the encounter.
    • They can be differentiated from the clones because they have higher HP and will continue to cast Utsusemi as well as other ninjutsu.
    • Once in the fight, they will still continue to spawn clones as the clones are dispatched.
    • Once an agent is defeated, any of his or her remaining clones will despawn after a couple of seconds.
  • When all three agents are down, you will be rewarded a Cactuar key, which can be redeemed at the Treasure Coffer in Tenshodo Headquarters in Lower Jeuno.
  • Interact with the Outcropping again for a cutscene.
    • This cutscene may freeze for players using the unofficial windower. This happens even at the default framerate. The mission will still be flagged as completed, and you continue to the next mission after disconnecting and logging in again.
      • If you wanted to watch the cutscene, disconnect from the game and log in without the windower.
      • You can restart the cutscene from the Goblin Footprint at (K-6/7) by trading it an item or gil, which will be returned to you.
